Windows Mobile Offers DST Fix

Article Comments  21

Microsoft is issuing an update for Windows Mobile users so their phones will be able to adjust accurately to Daylight Savings Time (DST), which starts three weeks earlier this year. Since many mobile device clocks don't automatically adjust, users run the risk of having their clocks (and calendar appointments) be an hour off for the three week period. Because the DST change effects everyone in North America, Microsoft recommends Windows Mobile users in the U.S., Canada and Mexico download and install the update on their mobile phones, which should solve the issue. The download is available at the link below.

Why not automatic time adjustment?????????

If computers are so, so, so advanced, then why can't they adjust time off of the internet or cellular networks?!?!?!?!!!!???

And if computers are so advanced why do they become DISABLED over what the time and date is, big deal about what time/date is.

If computers can't function w/o the correct time/date then that's just pathetic!!!!

I'm not sure I understand this...my basic as whitebread handset automatically updates daylight savings time.

So why not this?

Just to let all you people know who are hopelessly lost on a DST issue. You can chose to have the network set the time on the device.

Start > Settings > Phone > Services tab > Time Synchronization > Get settings > check the box, and hit "update now...

The problem isn't about them not working, it's about the time being wrong.

If the time is wrong, then any alarms, alerts, scheduled items, will all go off at the wrong time.
I'm not sure why no one who actually owns a Windows Mobile device responded, but the phone does have time synchronization via your providers wireless network. At least on the XV6700 it does.
